The brain is a three-pound mass of gray matter enclosed in the cranium. It interprets sensory impulses, coordinates and controls bodily functioning and is the center of emotion and thought. The brain has three main sections: the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum and brain stem. There are left and right cerebral hemispheres. They are divided into sections called lobes. The left cerebral hemisphere controls the right side of the body and is responsible for speech. The right cerebral hemisphere controls the left side of the body and is responsible for creative thinking.

It’s estimated that 8 million people sustain brain injuries each year in the United States. At least 2 million of those injured will be permanently impaired.

After brain injury things that once were easy and familiar become strange and difficult. A great deal of mental effort is usually required to do things that required little or no effort before the brain injury. Work, school and personal relationships suffer. The injured party often becomes less efficient at their job and their livelihood is jeopardized. Often they become unpredictable, unreliable, and sometimes violent. When the victim of brain injury is a child, they can develop behavioral problems at home and school. Often they regress to an earlier development state. As you can imagine, a brain injury can affect the entire family.
